A lovely lesson

Mum taught our Family Home Evening Lesson on Monday night, and I really loved it. It was about patience, but she came at it from an angle I'd never really thought of before, and I've been thinking about it ever since her lesson. It really touched me, and has been giving me the energy to keep trying and the faith that my repetedly failed attempts at life are maybe not the failures I think they are.

Anyway, just noticed that she's written some of the same thoughts in a really beautiful entry on her blog, and wanted to recommend it. She's titled it 'Patience for Eternity', pop on over to her blog and have a read of the post if you have a moment.

Tammy, thank you, I'm touched! I'm so glad the lesson was helpful :) But I'd have to say that no-one watching you will ever have noticed too many 'failed attempts at life'. We all know how wonderful you are :)

I think your mom is right. I think we are own worst critic. From now on instead of looking at things in my life as "failed attempts" rather look at it as stepping stones to eternal life. Each time we think we fail, it in actuality teaches us something, which in turn, if learned well, we use to guide our paths back to our eternal progression. Patience is a hard quality to achieve but how great life would look if we do.
